As part of Class 1's learning on celebrations, Reverend Sue came to hold a mock wedding. We enjoyed taking on the roles of the wedding party and guests, throwing confetti and eating wedding cake!
Islam – Five Pillars of Islam 26 November
We have been learning about the Islamic faith and we have begun to find out about the five pillars of Islam. We used marshmallows and spaghetti to support a piece of paper to understand how a 'pillar' supports something and keeps it firm and safe, so we can understand the importance of the five special things that Muslims should do within the Islamic faith.
Class one have learnt about Diwali. We retold the story of Rama and Sita in the small world area. We have learnt about how people celebrate Diwali and have written cards to one another. Parents and friends were invited to a Wow afternoon to help us make lots of Diwali crafts including Diva lamps, firework pictures and Rangoli patterns. We served the Coconut Barfi that we had made, it was delicious!
